The IADR/AADR/CADR and NIDCR are offering a mentoring and networking lunch aimed at facilitating interactions between predoctoral and postdoctoral students and dental, oral and craniofacial research investigators. This event, planned for Wednesday, June 19, 2019 from 12 pm to 1:15 pm is designed to provide an opportunity for students to interact with experienced research mentors. The goal is to provide an informal venue for students to obtain guidance on their research program and research career trajectory, and to expand their network of mentors and peers to support and facilitate their research career success.
Mentors will be encouraged to lead informal, motivational, and realistic discussions about developing a successful research career. Lunch tables will be organized by research topic or career pathway, and two mentors will be assigned to each table. When registering, participants do not need to select a specific table and are encouraged to move among topics/tables during the session.
IADR/AADR/CADR Annual Meeting attendees who register as students (e.g., graduate students, dental students and non-independent postdoctoral researchers) will be able to register for Mentoring and Networking Lunch for an additional fee through the IADR meeting registration process.
(Attendance limited to 96, must register to attend. Fee: $25)
